ROSETTA/BALBOA
PROJECT MERCURY
LEVEL PLANE

Two underground Philadelphia, PA rock bands putting a split disc together usually doesn't sound like an unusual undertaking, unless the bands in question are hardcore troupe Balboa and the Isis-inspired Rosetta. Here, not only does each act gets to strut their own unique slant on heavy music from the City of Brotherly Love, but they join forces like The Wonder Twins at the end for a rousing uniting of chest-beating hardcore and isolationist metal with the epic title cut, far surpassing anything else here from either group.
